Chadron State College offers free and confidential counseling services to all students. Counseling Services offices are located with CSC’s Student Health Services in Crites Hall. Licensed counselors are available to help you with the everyday problems of college life (relationships, homesickness, stress, etc.) as well as more urgent situations.

Accessing Counseling Services

Students can make an appointment for counseling by calling the Health Services office at 308-432-6232 (preferred); by calling the counselor's direct line (see above). Counseling sessions usually last about 50 minutes. Students are welcome to drop in for counseling but must understand that the counselor might not be available because of scheduled appointments or other commitments.

CSC Counseling Services also include a graduate intern, who is supervised by Mr. Cassiday.
